The village of Sandyford is situated in the valley at the foot of the Three Rock Mountain. A river runs from the mountain down through the village. It comes closer swiftly until it reaches the valley. Where the Gullet Road now stands there was a ford and it was probably from this ford that the village got its name. Doubtless large quantities of granite freestone - "sand" would be deposited here.
